Record-Breaking Year for Charters School Students Studying Medicine & Veterinary ScienceCharters School in Sunningdale is extremely proud to report that all of its Year 13 students who applied for university have received offers, including six for Oxbridge and a number who have been offered places to study Medicine or Veterinary Science after their A Levels this summer.

It has been a tough year with 20% more applicants nationally applying for Medicine/Veterinary courses and fewer offers being given out. Despite this, the school achieved a record breaking twelve offers, beating the previous record of eight.

Four students have gained places at universities to study Veterinary Science while eight have gained places for Medicine; including an offer for a student to study Medicine at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.

The school has a thriving Potential High Achievers programme which identifies students and provides extensive extra-curricular opportunities including masterclasses, workshops and university visits.

 Mrs Emma Rivers, who has mentored the Medicine/Veterinary students during their time in the Sixth Form said, “The 12 students who have been offered places for the autumn should be very proud of themselves.  Both Medicine and Veterinary Science applications require students to reflect upon work experience or volunteering placements and Covid-19 restrictions have meant that this has been difficult for students to organise this year. Our students have been extremely tenacious and have found innovative ways to help in their local community; from taking an interest in vulnerable neighbours to helping to walk dogs of those shielding during lockdown. They really are a superb group of young adults and we wish them well for their examinations.”
